Town centre footfall:

We are now working with Placeinformatics to enhance our information regarding footfall within the BID area of Hamilton. The platform provides insights that allow the organisation to make data-driven decisions using valuable footfall data and behavioural analytics to identify and understand visitor activity and optimise the town centre footfall. The data has shown that the popular Christmas Light Switch-On saw a month-on-month increase of 32.7%.

Results for January:

The area increased footfall by 0.7% versus 2023, +3,734 additional visitors. 63% of visitors came from within a 10-mile radius of the town centre. The average dwell time for our visitors in January was 80 minutes.
